What a great day! It’s Monday and in the northern hemisphere according to the television weather maps we have spring-like weather in most parts. When you’re shopping, spring flowers are everywhere, and most people are thinking about their gardens. Well, I think and plan a garden each year but not so competent in execution. I usually settle for some potted vegetables that wither before I actually get them in the garden area.
And it’s also CONVENTION season. Actually, ours has already started. In March we had SXSW and North Texas Two Step, in April we visited the London Book Fair, So our spring so far has been productive and busy!
In May we have RT in New Orleans followed closely by Book Expo America, then Lori Foster’s, then our big Boas & Tiaras, then off to LA for Television Critics previews and then we split: off to San Diego Comic Con and San Antonio for RWA convention. I’m tired just typing all this much less thinking about it! But the bottom line is we get to meet in person our readers and authors. And truly isn’t that what makes our life so wonderful.
Oh, I forgot the one next week, the Malice Domestic in Bethesda. But our designate has family so we may be giving it a miss which is sad. We’d love to get to know more of our cozy mystery readers.
If you’re a reader of Fresh Fiction, then be sure to check the newsletters for information on VERY special meet and greets open only to our readers and authors. You’ll have special snacks but more important time to meet with fabulous authors who love their Fresh Fiction fans!
So, all the future traveling and our new (and old) staff members starting in May makes me look over our near future plans. I can’t wait for the rest of the year!
How do you spend Monday? Do you think about what’s coming down the pike or are you recovering from a weekend?
